The affordable education loan option
A Grade R teacher at Bankfontein Combined School in Middelburg has been fired after allegedly forcing a pupil to eat her own faeces, the Mpumalanga Education Department said on Wednesday.
Spokesman Jasper Zwane said the teacher could appeal to the MEC within five days.
“This outcome will send a clear message that government cares for children and will, in terms of the law, deal with anyone who abuses children,” said Zwane.
The teacher was suspended in July after forcing the pupil to eat her waste, he said.
